In some cases, your status may allow you to bring in one or more guests. This is very specific to each airline/program and the various levels, though, so you'll have to check the details for your own loyalty program. This page gives some general rules. They say that access via your travel class (business, first...) usually doesn't allow you to bring in a ...

Update December 2018 The Sauna is currently closed, as part of the wider Finnair non-Schengen lounge refurbishment. Lounge staff tell me it'll re-open lovely and refreshed in the spring There really is a sauna in the lounge! It's only in the non-Schengen lounge. It's somewhat hidden, tucked away in the middle of the non-Schengen lounge complex, and anyone ...

This depends on a number of factors. Firstly there is the physical aspect - can you physically access the lounge? Lounges are generally in the 'departure' area of the airport, which is often only accessible by departing passengers - at least for international arrivals, but even sometimes for domestic arrivals. If you can't physically access the lounge ...

With the 1st class ticket you will get a more comfortable seat with more legroom for the 6 hour journey, and a free seat reservation(normally €4.50). For me that would be far more important that access to the lounge for a few minutes before the journey, and and definitely worth the €10(normally the price differential is much more). I don't know how I can ...

Yellowpages.com says the number is +1 (281) 553-0400, and suggests an alternate number +1 (281) 230-3100. Yellowpages.com is the web based descendant of the physical printed telephone directories that were (and still are in some areas) distributed to everyone with a landline telephone in the USA. It is so named because business telephone listings are ...

In recent years, I have encountered with all major airlines that they want to see your boarding pass and a valid ID. As a consequence, you can of course walk out and in as often as you like, but someone else with your boarding pass (and ID!) will have trouble if he doesn't look a lot like you. It is also a clear violation, and if caught, you will not only ...

Based on advice from FlyerTalk, which suggested AA then CX then BA, I decided to try out the first two. (I know the BA ones from T5). It's a tough job, but those showers won't review themselves... The short answer - AA, by a nose The American Airlines lounges showers seem to be located between the two lounges, and I think everyone can have access. (Those ...

I do this regularly for plane spotting. Border guards at ZRH do not require you to show a boarding pass. I just show my (Swedish) ID card and sometimes they ask where I'm going, in which case I just make up a random city where there's an upcoming flight. Done! And yes, you can go back with no issues - just follow the signs for the A/B gates.

As has been pointed out by several people in the comments, your question is similar to the question Can we switch terminals at Heathrow (LHR) for shopping only?, and indeed that question does give some relevant advice - however there is a little bit more to it in this case. Priority Pass currently have 4 lounges available at LHR - A ServisAir lounge in each ...

To add to JoErNanO's answer which is spot on in general, in this case you will probably have Business Class lounge access on the basis of your departing domestic flight, so long as it's all been booked on a single ticket. (There are no departures from Heathrow before 6am, so you'll not be able to get access to the Concorde Room on the grounds that you've ...

The train stations are not airside so you will need to exit terminal 5 through the immigration control then follow the signs to the station. Fortunately you have the required visa.

As per your comments, your flight is actually with United Airlines, not Air Canada. United Airlines do have not a United Club at Manchester, but they do provide access to a "contract lounge" for customers travelling in Business Class, which is the Escape Lounge. I've used this lounge previously, and whilst it's nothing overly special, it's certainly better ...

Depends on your status and ticket type(s). Access rules are fairly complicated: See https://www.lufthansa.com/us/en/Lounge-types-and-access In "most" cases (business class ticket and/or Star Alliance Gold), you will need a same day departure boarding pass to access the lounge. So if you already have a boarding pass for your connecting flight when you arrive,...

It seems to be possible to enter without a train ticket for these members. On their lounge page, Amtrak lists who can access them. They list those specifically needing a ticket: Amtrak passengers with a same-day ticket (departing) or ticket receipt (arriving) in First Class or sleeping car accommodations. Complimentary ClubAcela Single-Day Pass ...

I don't believe so, no, unless you have arrivals lounge access. When you get off your flight in your original terminal (in this case Terminal 2), you'll be in the arrivals passenger flow. Unlike a domestic US arrival, for example, you don't just get dumped out into the terminal's departure gate area, but into a secure area. You'll then follow the purple ...

The lounge access depends on what time your connecting flight leaves. My understanding is that you'll be allowed access to Business/First Class lounges if and only if the connecting flight leaves on the same day or before 6am the following day. Quoting from the One World webpage on lounges terms and conditions (emphasis mine): oneworld lounge access for ...

Normally, it is not possible to move freely between terminals at Heathrow, unless you book a shopping transfer. You need to check in and clear security in your departure terminal, and then otherwise need to stay there. On arrival, if you're transferring to another terminal, you do that before clearing security, so you can't enter the other terminal However.....

As of January 2015: Lounge = no, basic refreshments = yes There are two pertinent BAEC FlyerTalk threads covering this: Replacement BA Lounge at NBO??? BA Nairobi Lounge Update? Based on that, until the new terminal building is finished at some point in the next year, there is no lounge that BA is using. (BA aren't using the Swissport one). On arriving at ...

According to the Qantas website, there is one and you should have access to it - Location: Departure hall Level 2 - (Lift is located between the duty free collect and the bar).

There's some good news and some bad news... The Good news is that your inbound flight is considered a "same day" flight, so you would be able to enter the United Club based on that flight. The Bad news is that the United Clubs in Chicago Terminal 1 are currently not accepting one-time passes due to one or more of the clubs being closed for construction. ...

Somewhat surprisingly, the answer is no: one guest is OK, but additional kids are not. From customer service: Please be advised that you only have one guest allowance included when you access our lounges using your [Krisflyer Gold] membership card. However, you can purchase 2 Single Entry passes to the lounge for your 2 children for $65 (per person). It ...

Legally no, but often there is just a check of the ticket (and a scan of ticket, so that you may enter only once). You might be able to pay an entry fee (maybe with a discount because of your eligibility). It is said that it is cheaper than staying in the "normal areas": you have less time to wait near boutiques and restaurants, so possibly less expenses.

There is one lounge only (Convives de marque, available in departures and in arrivals), the access can bought directly at the lounge for a fee of (24.000 Dhs). Another way to buy the access can is from prioritypass for $27 USD (single visit fee will be deducted from your standard membership balance which will cost you $99). You also can make a reservation ...

No, you are not allowed to get airside in the other terminals without a same day boarding pass departing from the terminal in question. Even if you do successfully get into the other terminals (actually it is possible to get access to Terminals 2,3 and 4 without a boarding pass but only if you really know your way around Heathrow), the lounge staff are ...

If you are interested in both United Club membership and holding a United mileage credit card, by all means go for the United Club card. But everyone isn't necessarily like you. Some people aren't interested in holding an additional credit card, or can't qualify for an additional credit card, or can't qualify for this particular card, but are still ...

The new Hamad International airport in Doha isn't quite finished yet, so things may change over the next year or so. As an example, in November 2014 the Qatar Airways First Class lounge isn't yet open (not that it'll matter much for your situation, but still...!) If you are flying Qatar Airways in Business Class, then you'll have access to the very ...

The SAS Plus page you linked, does mention the access to lounges. However it does also note that this access is subject to availability. The only lounge at Keflavik seems to be the Saga Lounge by Iceland Air. In its access rules, Iceland Air does not mention SAS passengers at all, regardless of flight class. Hence, SAS Plus passengers do not have access to ...

Air France Lounge Location The Air France webpage on lounges has a pretty detailed description of lounges in Terminals 2E: and 2F: More details can also be found on the Easy CDG website (in French). Lounge Index also has a list of lounges at CDG, with a description of their location. According to this website, there are two Air France lounges at CDG, one ...

The answer is "Yes" but only if you are arriving from an intercontinental flight. EuroBonus Gold & Diamond members can also access SAS lounges if arriving from a SAS-operated intercontinental flight (except at Newark due to airport authority regulations). https://www.flysas.com/en/travel-info/at-the-airport/lounges/lounge-access/ I would presume ...

I visited the concourse E without any trouble. When the agent at passport control asked me where I was going, I simply told him that I'm visiting a specific lounge on the other side, and he let me through. When I came back I had to go through customs and I had to pass one more time through security. I also managed to do this on Frankfurt. I used the new, ...
